Widgets and Tasker support in Android app

Post by Provo » 29 Sep 2017 19:53

The Z-Way Android app is good, but what would make it really good is if you add support for Widgets, for placing devices directly on the desktop. And if you add support for Tasker, so that it registers as a Tasker plugin. Being able to generate Tasker profiles based on Z-Way device status and events, as well as easily getting and setting device status in Tasker both on and off the home wifi, would be fantastic.

(Oh, and please add an on/off button of some sort to the multilevel switches in the UI.)

Hi! This is planned. For now you can use an HTTP Shortcuts app. There was a white paper somewhere...

Here is my config:

Nice, are both widget support and Tasker support planned?

I actually have something halfway similar to what you're describing, only it's through Tasker (because I'm also automating the api calls) and I'm using the ZAutomation api, which in my current setup only works locally. Changing to your approach looks like it will work outside of the home wifi as well, but does it support getting values as well as setting them?

I'd appreciate a link to the white paper, if you should find it. :)

I got your approach working for turning things on and off, but how do I set for instance the level of a multilevel switch? And how do I read a device value?

You can use a scene to dim lights to some specific levels. And then activate the scene

That's true, but what about getting values?

Can it support a mobile-spy-apps.com mobile recorder on Android?

Yes you can add schedule widget in the android app with the use of alarm manager, Calendar as per your requirement. :)
